Swimming - 29. October 2007.

Women perfrom well at ASA National Masters and Senior Age Group Championships

In the women's 200m Breaststroke, Katie Henderson set a new British record in the 25-29 years age group with a time of 2:36.60.

Amanda Heath was unlucky not to set a new World Record in the same event, missing out by less than a second to claim a new European record. Her time of 2:58.35 was five seconds quicker than anyone else in her age group, which she is competing in for the first year.

"I'm reasonably happy with that swim. My main aim coming into this meet was the 100m Breaststroke, which I broke the world record for yesterday but all-in-all I pleased with how things have gone," she said.

Aimee Ramm (GB Police) took two European records for the 25-29 years age group in the 100m Individual Medley (1:06.43) and the 100m Freestyle (56.98), continuing the fantastic form displayed so far.

Lesley Wilde (Co Oxford) took a European and a British record in the 45-49 years age group.

The first came in the 400m Individual Medley when she touched home in 5:31.00 to set a new European standard, with her British record coming six events later in the 50m Backstroke (33.27).

Cassie Patten (Stockport Metro) took the British record in the 400m Individual Medley (18-24 years) with a time of 4:46.88, finishing 25m clear of the swimmer how came second in her heat. She also took the British record in the 400m Freestyle event with a time of 4:10.39.

The 400m I.M event marked the end to the world open water silver medallist's campaign, and she can be happy with the results and times she achieved.

"I came into this meet after being in heavy training and to come within 1.5 seconds of my personal best times in all events I have swam in is great," she said.

"This is a really enjoyable meet to come to and I'm happy with the shape I'm in as I look towards the rest of the season."
